While the Liberal establishment and mainstream media portray the Occupy Wall Street movement as organic and nonviolent, Occupy Unmasked reveals the sinister, organized, and highly orchestrated nature of its leaders and their number one goal: Not just to change government, but to destroy it. Led by hugely influential conservative visionary, the late Andrew Breitbart, Occupy Unmasked delves deep beneath the surface of the Occupy movement to show its dark anarchist roots. Behind the largely naive students and legitimately concerned citizens looking for answers stand those who advocate the use of violence, black bloc operations, and intimidation as protest tactics - the same tactics they used during the anti-war protests of the 1960's, anti-nuclear weapons protests of the 80's, WTO protests of the 90's, and the IMF protests of recent years.

The legacy of legendary dancer and choreographer Honey Daniels lives on in spirited 17-year-old Maria Bennett. After a brush with the law, Maria has returned to her gritty Bronx roots to rebuild her life with nothing but a talent for street dance and a burning ambition to prove herself. She finds refuge in the place that made her feel most alive as kid-the rec center where Honey's exuberant classes first ignited her passion for dance. Keeping on the straight and narrow means living with Honey's mom Connie and holding down a job just to make ends meet. But a rare night out at a local dance club gives her an opportunity to let loose with a joy and energy she had almost forgotten. Maria's killer moves catch the eye of Brandon, a Rec Center volunteer, who invites her to help him transform a group of gifted but undisciplined dancers called the HD's. Maria's skills also attract the attention of her old boyfriend Luis, the charismatic leader of the award-winning 718 dance crew, who hopes to lure her back into the street world she is trying to escape. Seeing a chance at creating a new and meaningful life, Maria pours her heart and soul into dance and begins training the HDs to compete on the television dance competition "Dance or Die"-which means going up against the 718 and Luis. Like Honey before her, Maria rediscovers the thrill of dancing as she finds out who she truly is and where she belongs.

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature's new True Life Adventure "Bears" showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life's most important lessons. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold.

As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food-ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run-while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf pack. "Bears" captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet's last great wildernesses-Alaska! Directed by Alastair Fothergill ("Earth," "African Cats" and "Chimpanzee") and Keith Scholey ("African Cats"), "Bears" arrives in theaters April 18, 2014, to celebrate Earth Day.(c) Disney

Could two American artists have less in common than Sol LeWitt and Llyn Foulkes? Yet both, in their own way, help define what is exciting and cutting-edge in contemporary art. LeWitt (1928-2007) - a notoriously camera-shy, self-effacing, and generous soul - counts among the 20th century's most esteemed conceptual artists. Dutch filmmaker Chris Teerink weaves together rare archival material with footage of the 2011 installation of Wall Drawing #801: Spiral - a glorious white line spiraling down the black wall of a cupola for more than 3 miles. Llyn Foulkes is the West Coast wild man to LeWitt's ascetic East Coast intellectual. Whether talking about his work and life, painting at all hours of the day or night, or making music (he literally is a one-man band), Foulkes embodies the obsessive rebel -- filled with anger, regret, fear, and narcissism - plus a great many hilarious stories about the L.A. art world. His wonderfully macabre paintings and constructions (some incorporating small dead animals) have recently been rediscovered, and his 8-years-in-the-making magnum opus, The Lost Frontier, was purchased by L.A.'s Hammer Museum.

SPLIT: A Deeper Divide carries the riveting investigation into the partisanship paralyzing our politics initiated by the critically-acclaimed SPLIT: A Divided America - further revealing a shocking political portrait of a nation even more profoundly polarized and deeply divided than before. The thought-provoking documentary explores the historically unprecedented partisan rancour plaguing our country and our politics through extraordinary access to some of the sharpest minds analyzing politics and society today including Senator Bayh (D-IN), Senator Hagel (R-NE), Lawrence Lessig (Director, Foundation of Ethics; Harvard), Grover Norquist (American for Tax Reform) Jacob Hacker (Director, Institution for Social and Policy Studies; Yale), Ezra Klein (MSNBC), Robert Kaiser (Washington Post), Norm Ornstein (AEI), Thomas Frank (Wall Street Journal), Noam Chomsky (MIT), Robert Putnam (Harvard), Jesse Jackson (Rainbow/PUSH Coallition), Nicholas Kristof (NY Times), Tucker Carlson (Fox News), Amy Goodman (Democracy Now) among others - for commentary as insightful as it is entertaining. The film moves beyond the headlines of sound-bite battles pitting conservatives vs. liberals to the deeper questions of why - why have we become two Americas? what are the forces - social, cultural, economic - that divide our nation so deeply that we are unable to even discuss our differences? SPLIT: A Deeper Divide is an unflinching look at our fractured nation that offers a much needed non-partisan perspective on what lies beneath the divides splitting the country. The documentary is an absolute must-see before the election.
